What are Dixie products made of?

Dixie brand products are made of paper with and an outside layer of polyethylene which is mostly made up of cellulose fiber. The paper that makes up Dixie products is sustainably sourced from trees that are certified and fall under the Sustainable Forest Initiative® Fiber Sourcing Standard that Georgia-Pacific has in place. The outside coating makes the products extra firm as well as soak-proof, leaving you with higher quality plates, cups, and bowls.

Georgia-Pacific uses all parts of the tree to make Dixie products, so nothing goes to waste. After cutting down a tree to manufacture their products, the company will then plant one in its place to sustain the environment and to continue making products.

Dixie's cutlery is made of crystal clear plastic and is durable enough to cut through thick pieces of steak and chicken without breaking. This sturdy plastic stands out from its competitors because of how unlikely they are to break while you are using them. The prongs on the forks aren't as breakable compared to other cutlery brands, and the knives can cut through pretty much anything a regular knife could.

Are Dixie paper products microwave safe?

Dixie paper products are microwave safe but should be used with caution while heating up food. Although they are made of paper, they can still be used to heat food on for shorter periods of time. Based on your microwave and the type of food you are warming up; Dixie products are not guaranteed to hold up one hundred percent. Be sure to keep an eye on the product while it is in the microwave and although uncommon, take it out if anything abnormal starts to occur.

While using Dixie paper products in the microwave with caution is all right, Dixie plastic silverware should not be placed in the microwave. The plastic utensil can melt and could cause flames if contacted with high temperatures.

Are Dixie products recyclable?

Dixie paper products are recyclable, and also reusable if you prefer. If you ate something or used a Dixie paper plate or bowl that didn't leave a mess, you can most certainly use it again after wiping it clean with a damp paper towel. Using Dixie products for arts and crafts is a great way to get additional uses out of the product as well.

If you wish to recycle your Dixie paper products, they can be put into the recycling bin if they aren't covered in leftover sauces or stains. If you ate crackers and cheese and there is no residue left on the item, toss it in the recycling bin to give it another life. Be sure to check with your recycling center for the acceptance of Dixie paper cups because of the coating on the outside. Some recycling centers do not accept them as it may not be recyclable.

Are Dixie products compostable?

It depends on the type of Dixie product, but some are compostable. Because the brand meets the Sustainable Forestry Initiative Certification Standard, items such as plates, bowls, and napkins are compostable if they don't have a coating on the outside of them and if they are to be composted commercially. If you try to compost them at home, it will a very long time for the items to break down and disintegrate, which would not benefit the rest of your compost pile. Dixie cups are not compostable due to the coating on the outside of the products. While the paper itself can break down, the coating is not able to.

Dixie products and other brands of paper products are not toxic because they are not made with toxins of any kind.

When searching for Dixie products, look for the ones with polycoated paper as the material type.
